Ed Orgeron shares how big LSU's win over Alabama played out in Baton Rouge
There have been plenty of special moments for LSU this season as the fan base and Baton Rouge community have enjoyed the unique season.
Coach Ed Orgeron shared at his regular Monday press conference that he has largely been out of the public eye around town since August, except for his weekly radio show. But he remembers one time where things were different coming home from a win.
“After the Alabama game, to see the joy on the people’s face in Louisiana,” Orgeron said. “I think there was 30 kids in our driveway. Just to see, I remember as a kid watching LSU play and what it meant to me. Just to see the joy on those kids’ face, I think that was the biggest thing.”
He also said young LSU superfan Colton Moore Facetimes with Orgeron’s wife, Kelly, every day.
The Tigers next play Arkansas in Tiger Stadium and Orgeron said he wouldn’t talk about potentially winning the SEC West, but that, “This is the next game up.”
Asked about the run defense problems at Ole Miss, Orgeron said he first points to himself, and would never place the blame with the players.
“I believe in our coaching staff. I believe in Dave Aranda. I believe in our players,” he said.
